The Future We Want Together

13 September 2022, Singapore

How can we make a better future? What can we do to improve people’s lives? What must we not do? The Nobel Prize Dialogue Singapore is a series of frank conversations exploring the best path to a world with improved wellbeing for all. 

Young people will play a leading role in the dialogue. Nobel Prize laureates and regional thought-leaders will engage in discussions with students from all over the Asia-Pacific region, providing a rare opportunity to bridge the gap between generations. 

In the context of the ongoing global crises, the dialogue will consider six broad themes: education, climate change, health, economic, digital and happiness.

In addition, a special session will explore war and peace and also the next frontier, space, asking whether we are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past. 

Confirmed Nobel Prize laureates are currently: Steven Chu, physics laureate 1997; Angus Deaton, economic sciences laureate 2015; Esther Duflo, economic sciences 2019; May-Britt Moser, medicine laureate 2014; Paul Romer, economic sciences laureate 2018.  

By making possible this unique set of conversations and championing the importance of youth in shaping the future, Nobel Prize Outreach and the National University of Singapore can play a leadership role in the region, informing future policy directions, ensuring that lessons are learnt from the pandemic and promoting regional cooperation & solidarity. Working together, we can help visualise and chart ‘the future we want’.
